Report: James Ennis' modified contract


When James Ennis signed his contract with the Miami Heat last year, there was a provision in the deal that would fully guarantee his 2015-16 salary if he was not waived on or before August 1, 2015. That provision will be modified this week. From Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel:

    "Ennis originally had a Saturday deadline for the Heat to either guarantee half of his $845,000 salary or release him. Instead, two sources involved in the process told the Sun Sentinel that the contract will be modified with no decision required until the eve of the season, when the Heat will have to decide to guarantee his salary for all of 2015-16. ... The move with Ennis effectively eliminates Saturday as a contract deadline for the Heat."

Ennis' contract runs through the 2016-17 season.
